# Functional Maths - measures, shape & space

Resources particularly suitable for teaching and underpinning **Functional Mathematics - using common measures, shape and space**. May cover any or all of the following topics:

- money (inc. simple interest);
- time
- metric and Imperial measures of length, weight and capacity
- temperature
- compound measures inc. speed, density & rates of pay
- 2D and 3D shapes inc. line symmetry
- positional and directional vocabulary
- reading scales / using measuring instruments
- maps and scale plans
- coordinates (positive & negative)
- angles
- constructing and interpreting geometric diagrams and models (inc. nets and elevations)
- perimeter, area and volume.

A range of maths questions relating to Valentine's Day. Topics include measures; perimeter, area and volume; fractions and percentages; and ratio/proportion.

Ideal for non-calculator practice and revision. Fully mapped to the reformed maths content, with answers

This is a resource I've designed to be a homework/classwork support for L1 Functional Skills maths (reform).

**Editor's notes**

A wonderful 104-page compilation of resources covering almost every aspect of Level 1 Reformed Functional Maths. With curriculum mapping and links to further resources. **Note this project includes resources from many excellent free web sites** - please read the notes on the front cover sheet and page 104 for further information.

Fun bingo game where learners practise measuring and drawing a grid – in addition to calculating areas and perimeters of simple shapes.

First one to a get line (or a full house) wins!

**Editor’s note**

Lovely idea that could easily be adapted for other topics.

Some real world scenarios given a twist to incorporate fractions, decimals, percentages & ratios.

By the end of the worksheet, students will have a better understanding of when they would use each format in the real world and have developed their critical analysis skills.

Answers included!

A series of questions that asks the learner to read a start time in words, draw this time on an analogue clock face then calculate a second time from a question and draw this on a second clock face.

I am using this with an E2 learner who wants to improve her time telling skills and it has presented a good challenge for her.

A resource for maths to allow students to calculate the cost of a home made pizza and compare to a takeaway / store bought pizza. Considering profits and recipe scale.

2 different levels of sheet Foundation and higher that can be printed back to back with a design ideas sheet to give the costing some context or used in a catering / life skills lesson for cross curricular.

**Editor’s note**

PPT format but prints as 3 x A4 sized editable worksheets.

This resource uses several tables of data and requires the user to complete calculations based on the data such as mean, median, mode and range as well as percentages and rounding. There is also a task where the learner must create a chart based on a table of data.

**Editor’s note**

There is something for everyone in this robust resource as it’s split into three sections: weather, Premier League and Glastonbury Festival. With answers and curriculum mapping.

21 interesting (and challenging!) questions for practice with converting between metric and imperial measurements. Question pages can be divided amongst the class and then answers can be shared. Extension ideas could include measuring learners’ feet/ height and comparing them to the records.

**Editor’s note**

Also provides practice with rounding decimals to a sensible number of decimal places.**The answer sheet, which includes detailed working out, is only available to site contributors. Please see details within the resource.**

This functional resource gets the learner to answers some questions about a depicted rail ticket and then look up costs for two journeys and carry out further calculations: Woking to London (E2), London to Glasgow (E3 extension questions).

Addition is used to find the cost of two tickets and subtraction to find the difference between two tickets and the cost of two tickets. Multiplication is used to find the cost of an hourly car park ticket.

A range of questions that I have designed for my Functional Skills Maths learners.The focus is on the four operations (+ – x ÷) with wide coverage of measures and money.

There are two sets of similar, but differentiated, questions so that learners at both both levels can complete them in the same lesson. Each set of questions cover several themes (dog show and music festival) followed by a set of mixed questions and a final page of stretch and challenge tasks.
